By golly, Megyn Kelly is show-biz good. She got Donald Trump to heap praise on her on national TV for “reaching out,” to use millennial speak, when in fact she was the desperate party who, during the past year, placed her inflated ego before the journalistic obligation to suck it up and get the story.
So Trump has succumbed, and has exposed himself to this intellectual floozy’s much-hyped, yet-to-be screened interview. And what does Kelly ask him?
The same sort of question that started the Kelly-Trump feud: a deceptive probe; a question that in itself suggests certain things about the man’s character, veracity and emotional make-up.
“You seemed to stay angry for months. Was that real, or was that strategy?”
Kelly has deployed this method before, highlighted in “Megyn Kelly’s ‘Journalistic’ Method.” But Trump is not keeping up with her cunning ploys.
Trump’s response, as always, is truthful, candid. But his acquiescence in Kelly’s self-aggrandizement (plain for all to see) was unwise in the extreme.
“Well I’m a real person,” the real estate titan responded. “I have great respect for you that you were able to call me and say ‘Let’s get together, let’s talk.’ To me, I would not have done that,” he admitted further.
